Hi, great to have you here.


I’m a Lifehacker always seeking the smarter way of doing. I believe in a purpose-driven design. I organize the information within a visual framework. I believe that the best design is when there is nothing left to take away. I’m a seeker, a listener, a thinker, a problem solver.

Perfect sense of color. This is a no joke.

Worked for brands: Nestle, Gillette, Vizir, Ariel, Oral-b, Ferrero, tic tac, Wella, Pantene, Nivea…

Dtp. Let me print this.

UI. Been there, done that.

Experience with Maya 3D. It was 360° fun.

Attention to detail. I’m not messing with my pixels.

Figma made me do it.

Serious Slides skills. “An one eyed Keynoter”.

InDesign – It’s a love-hate relationship.

Illustration. Some cats and plants. Wait. “Botanical, minimalistic art Giclée”.

Branding. Yeah!

Photoshop and Illustrator – I got this.

10 Years in art schools with the title “Master of Art”. Sounds Pro.

Maria is simply an excellent designer. She brought our brand style guide to a whole new level and lead company-wide implementation thoroughly. I also love her professional creativity, way beyond the obvious and spot-on for our discerning, high-brow audience. Finally, and hard to find in the design world, she is also a great mentor for junior designers!

I've worked together with Maria for over 4 years, she was reporting to me. In all projects we've done together we had great chemistry where Maria could focus on the creative aspects of the projects and I made sure that everything was planned and organized well with all stakeholders. Maria is an amazing conceptual thinker. (...) She is great at protecting the brand guidelines but is not afraid to push the boundaries to see what else is possible. She has a great eye for detail. She is a creative human being and I believe she can add a lot of value to companies who want to push their brand/design to the next level.

Lindy AtenDesign Studio Manager / Creative Services Director at Treatwell

Maria is a very experienced designer. She is authentic, persuasive and always open to receive and share ideas to make her work even better for the business. Maria and I worked together on new projects for Treatwell to grow the brand and business regional and international. With the right brief, Maria is able to work very independent and propose the best possible concepts. She has an eye for detail and thinks outside of the box. I would recommend Maria!

Sandra SchillemansHead of Marketing Benelux at Treatwell

I really enjoyed working and collaborating with Maria. As a designer she is incredibly conceptual, always coming up with multiple creative ideas to choose from. As well as that, she has a strong design eye to be able to execute those ideas to a super high standard - her designs are pixel-perfect! She was responsible for ensuring the Treatwell brand stayed consistent but evolved the brand further. She is also great fun to work with, a good collaborator, and is passionate about design.

Maria from the beginning of my time at Treatwell was kind and helpful, she always was happy to answer my questions, keen to help. I learned a lot from Maria and loved being involved with projects with her. I was always in awe of her creativity and really appreciated and respected her opinion. Maria is a wonderful, wonderful person!
